Our monthly orienteering meetup all along the Central Line stations. Turn up, get a copy of the map, and head out for an hour for a run. There will be someone to look after any bags etc while you run. Afterwards please join us for a drink. Food is available at this pub.
The format of this evening event makes it suitable for both adult beginners and experienced adult orienteers alike. Juniors may only participate if accompanied by an adult. Walk or run and see how many locations you can find within the one hour time limit. The map is not very technical at this event – click here for a sample of the simple map type used!

Reserve Your Map
Please email the Organiser, complete the online entry form below or sign up to the Facebook event to reserve a map.
A one hour score course, with control sites worth between 10 and 50 points, mostly, but not exclusively according to how far away they are. You will be given a choice of three answers – mark the correct one when you see the control.
This is a control visiting event! Circling answers at controls you have not visited, on the off chance you get it right, is cheating. Answers must be marked in race time.
Your score will be reduced by 2% of the points scored for every minute or part minute late.
The leading man and woman will score 100 points, second place 99 etc. In addition, your score will be increased by a multiple depending on your age and sex, and the resultant points used in the same way for a handicap competition.
Map & Terrain
The map is 1:10,000, with streets, paths and open areas marked. It will be printed on waterproof paper, with the clues on the back.
Results will be available after the event at www.chig.org.uk.
Equipment & Safety
You are advised to bring a torch and compass, as well as a pen or highlighter to mark your answers. We hope to use electronic timing, so bring your own dibber if you have one. Light coloured clothing for extra visibility is advised.
